ABC12 gets inside look at Om Sweet Om
Meet the OSO Sisters
Jennifer Ream and Christine Landaal started life as sisters and rapidly became best friends. Along the way, they also became wives, mothers, wellness coaches, and business partners in their interior design firm, Om Sweet Om.
Soon, Jennifer and Christine became known as the OSO Sisters, because of their personal and professional passions for healthy, organic living, and meditation, which has become an essential part of their everyday lives.
“We are two sisters who believe that the home should be a place of peace and tranquility, and this belief has guided our interior design business, Om Sweet Om, since 2005.”
For ten years, Om Sweet Om has designed living environments that encourage conscious living, are mindful of the earth, and grounded in simplicity, with the goal of creating beautiful, sustainable spaces that reflect the individual personality of their clients. By creating such sacred spaces within their interior designs, they provide clients a quiet spot to escape the everyday challenges that they face.
After over a decade of creating beautiful spaces through their interior design firm, their passion for healthy living, and daily practice of meditation, guided them in the creation of their first organic product, the OSO Organic Meditation cushion.
“As designers, we realized that the meditation cushions on the market didn’t mesh with the calm beauty designed into each sacred space. We were not only dissatisfied with the appearance of available meditation cushions, but the materials as well. We wanted more than organic/natural materials, but also organic fabrics that reflected the look and feel of the beauty of the cushion and the space,” says Christine.
Adds Jennifer, “Choosing products that are organic, where no harm has been done in their creation is extremely important. As we set out in search of the perfect meditation cushion we could not find any that met all of our requirements for beauty and sustainability—therefore we set out to create our own. We are extremely proud of this labor of love.”
Jennifer and Christine’s mission at OSO continues to be not only creating beautiful, sustainable products, but also to build a community that inspires, uplifts, and empowers through self-love practices. They “share the love” with their OSO community through weekly wellness tips found on their website, www.ososisters.com.
ABOUT THE OM SWEET OM CUSHION
Many find it difficult to fully reap the benefits of meditation due to the physical discomfort of holding a position while sitting on a hard floor or thin mat.
The Om Sweet Om meditation cushion was born of result of the realization that there were no 100% organic meditation cushions on the market that were equally beautiful and comfortable. Jennifer and Christine wanted to create a cushion that was suitable to any meditation environment, whether that be a specific scared space in the home, or a corner of the living room or bedroom.
Each 100% organic cushion is thoughtfully made in the USA. The outer and inner shells are 100% organic cotton, and the cushion is stuffed with sustainably-grown kapok, a silky fiber grown in tropical regions. Denser than cotton, kapok is naturally resilient and buoyant, and therefore holds its shape better than cotton or synthetic foam.
And the experience begins when you receive your cushion, which is wrapped in tissue paper and packaged in a beautiful, luxurious box made of sustainable material. It’s mindful packaging that’s as soothing as the cushion itself.

Through digital/audio modules, videos, live weekly coaching calls, and a private Facebook group you will begin your transformation.
This program is for the woman who is truly ready to invest in herself and her happiness!
When I first inquired about the Nourish program, I had no idea if this program could really truly help me. I was reluctant, but very hopeful. The energy that these women have is contagious! I was pretty sound in my spiritual practice, or so I thought! But I felt stuck. I had come as far as I thought that I could all on my own. I felt so ready for a change!
This program has exceed all of my expectations and then some! I have learned so much! I made friends that I will hold special in my heart for my lifetime. I have a sisterhood! I made changes that I could have never ever imagined that I could make. It happened almost instantly. The support from Jen and Christine, and my soul sisters has been something I could have never bargained for. There has been a shift deep within me, my world has grown by leaps and bounds. I literally cry tears of joy every time that I think about these last 8 weeks.
Thank you Jen and Christine. This program is such a beautiful representation of the gracious, loving, incredible beings that you two are. I more than love you both!!
As I considered how to begin my testimonial about Nourish and what it has meant to me, I came across something I had copied down many months ago because it spoke to my heart. I’m not sure who the author is. This is just part of it, but the main gist:
Refill Your Cup
· Take care of you.
· Make time for fitness.
· Make time for good and healthy foods.
· Make time for quiet.
· Make time for personal growth and happiness.
These simple changes might help your life go in an entirely new direction.
Nourish was exactly what my soul had been searching for. I instinctively knew I needed to “refill my cup,” but I had no idea of where to begin. The Nourish program laid it all out like a map to follow, and as the weeks went by, my life became calmer and happier. There were many changes I made during the program, but the most dramatic change has been the mindset shift that I need to take care of me first so I have something to give to everyone else.
Nourish helped me rediscover ME! It helped me redefine myself as my own person, not just a mom or a wife. Nourish started me on the path to true wellness, true happiness and true peace within myself. It has changed how I view myself and others, and has given me more confidence in my ability to trust my intuition and listen to my inner guidance. Nourish taught me to Stop and Listen! Looking back to myself just a couple months ago, I think I was really floundering, even though from the outside it looked a lot like I had it made.
I am forever grateful for the tools and techniques I have learned through this class, as I clearly see they will lead me through the rest of my life! The things I learned are both practical and sustainable, which is critical to me. I have the deepest respect for both Jen and Christine and their program. As I began the program, I hoped that at the end I would be able to say “Nourish changed my life,” and I can now say, without a doubt, it truly did. Truly Forever Grateful!
I have began writing this testimonial over and over, trying to figure out what to say. Transparency was all that kept coming to me, so here it is. I was a lost soul. I was a mom, a wife, a multiple location business owner going about her day faking the happiness of success. It’s because I fell out of love with myself and I beat myself up on a daily basis. I was referred to try the Nourish program and was terrified to because the truth would come out. However, I am so glad I did. I learned to forgive myself.
I learned to, well, NOURISH myself inside and out.
I learned how to enjoy life again. I learned to value MYSELF as well as others. I learned how it feels to live in a state of joy RIGHT NOW, not someday. I’m still a working progress, and that is why I remain a member of the Nourish Sisterhood, but not a day goes by that I regret or even think twice about this decision. It’s definitely life changing. Thank you Sisters!
